|Night-Blooming Cactus, Prentiss county, Mississippi, USA, June 28, 2015|
The huge flowers open for one night only and are pollinated by night-flying insects. They begin to close at the first hint of daylight.
Here is US zone 7, Night-Blooming Cacti can live outdoors in the Summer, but must be moved indoors for the Winter.
Sometimes, if the weather is exactly right, they will bloom again in early October.

The Prisoner of War / Missing in Action flag is inscribed 'You are not forgotten.'
Happy Independence Day, America!
